Very relaxed friendly atmosphere
The location was the best thing. The rooms were small, inefficient handling of processes and nothing that made me feel it to be a "grand 5* hotel". They should take a lesson from Germans in Efficiency... or another grand hotel in their neighborhood.
המלון עובר שיפוץ בלובי שלא ידענו בעת ההזמנה, אני חושב שזה פרט חשוב לדעת בעת ההזמנה, זה לא היה קריטי אבל רלוונטי. 25-5-2015
Location Scruffy corridors and dark bedrooms
Check in/ out not very efficient
NH is the ground zero for Amsterdam
We have stayed at this hotel twice now and it is in an excellent central location. The hotel reception is beautiful and the rooms are also in keeping with this. Our recent room was very clean, comfortable big bed and with all the amenities that you would expect. Prior to this we have stayed in one of the suites which are excellent but of course pricey. The general rooms are a good price - not the cheapest but you do get what you pay for. We didnt book the breakfast as this made the room price too expensive.
Calmness Had to pay EUR 100 for 4 days of broadband connection. Should be free inside the hotel.
Top Location, Friendly Staff Rooms, even booked early and got a cheap price, do not match at all a 5 star hotel. The room rate compensated a bit for it, but definitely disappointed by a hotel which has such a famous name.
Nothing exceptional springs to mind Badly stocked mini bar. No 24 hour restaurant/coffee shop
The location Furnishing of the rooms
Excellent all round! Will definitely stay here on future trips to Amsterdam. No iron or bathrobes!
Location Being overcharged/ They cached my deposit and failed to return it! (50 Euros)
Great staff knowledgeable about area and willing to answer questions and provide direction. Rooms are clean.
The attitude and helpfulness of staff was very good. Cleanliness and presentation was good The location suited us very well The breakfast room was too much of a crush and could have been laid out better. The afternoon coffee and evening bar facilities were given low priority.
Hotel staffs were professional and polite. Free Wifi is a bonus! It will be nice if breakfast is included.
The location and the quality, cleaness of the hotel
Good colours, style of reception and breakfastroon was pleasant, fireplace at receiption were really nice. No fitness room at the hotel. Wholefloor carpet is not same style than other things. Corridors ugly.
Lovely comfortable room, nice decor, loved the dimming lamps. We had to queue to check in, and after our long journey to get there, we were tired and wanted to go up to our room as quick as possible.
Excellent location, 3 minute walk from Amsterdam Centraal
WiFi did not work in my room (signal too weak) but worked well in lobby
location, nice hotel
The staff are excellent I do Think Ther price is high
Very good location; in the centre, but in a calm street. I liked the canal view from my room. Very good shuttle service to the airport. I needed someone to explain me how to switch on the central switch in order to have all electric appliances (including the lights) to work. It should be either connected to the opening of the door or made more clear. There was something strange with the pipes of the tap in the bathroom.
Gorgeous interior in the heart of the old city. Breakfast was incredible and sumptuous. Staff are warm, friendly, and attentive. Location is fantastic. 1. Heating was a major problem. 2. Parking is a nightmare. 3. Shower hot water not as hot as it should be. 4. Complimentary coffee in the lobby area is absent, though one can pay EUR 2-2.50 for a cup. Should be gratis. Once this is attended to, this will be able to achieve deserved greatness.
Great Location, nice facilities in the rood, good staff, very nice in general The waitress in the reastarant was once high :) Breakfast is too expensive.
People at frontera desk were really helpful, nice bar área rooms are modern and comfortable
The business suite was very nice: great bedding, spacious. The staff were helpful. The lobby had electrical and usb outlets. My room was in a construction zone accessible only by stairs!! And construction resumed right outside in the morning. They shouldn't put people there, or should start construction later in the day. I also found it a little odd that there would be no usb jack in a business suite.
situation géographique et le hall This is the list of the main bad points :
the sauna The price of the breakfast was a bit too much, the rooms were already expencive enough to include breakfast.
Location is very good. In the heart of the city. Few minutes walk from the dam square. Breakfast is very good and not too expensive. Air condition is not working in the room. Business rooms are in another building across the street. Rooms are small and not too comfortable. Parking costs 55 euros per day The room is expensive comparing to any other such an hotel in Europe. I was expecting much more...
The location is very good. Located in the heart of Amsterdam, there are many adventures to find that are just a short walk away.
Superb location, friendly and attentive staff, clean and comfortable. A very good value.
Very comfortable I did not get a wakeup call on one day, even though I requested one. Date: July 28,2007
Location and late breakfast No tea/cofee facilities in room
I like the location, the services and the cleanliness of my room. The room was reely small.
location, staff customer service I had to go home early!
i found it very nice andthe staff were very helpful also the breakfast was lovely
friendly staff & excellent buffet breakfast no room service
breakfast and location no air conditioning also step to bathroom
Location!!! Great breakfast with a selection of delicious food!. THe staff was also very helpful. The beds are little to narrow and too soft for me. The water in the shower never became hot, just warm.
The check-in staff (those specific two) they were great fun and welcoming and the cat. The hot (cold!!!) water in the morning and the explanations received at reception (i.e. a once off incident) not true. Every morning same issue all week-end. The lift- you can age 20 years waiting for it.
excellent location, staff, breakfast, great rooms no
The staff was very cooperative The room was very small
Well situated hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Reasonably comfortable bedroom, although small. Nice clean and well appointed bathroom. Hotel bedroom was rather small and paintwork on windows peeling.
Everything was excellent. Beautiful old world charm, large spacious room, staff was outstanding in every way with help on questions, places to eat and see and making reservations. No
Cosy, friendly staff. No problems no free wifi
Location, Lounge, Coffee and goodies at reception Beds hard
Great view overlooking the Singel Canal Friendly atmosphere Brilliant location
Good location. Not very modern. Adds 10 years to your life. People 50+ loves it I guess...
Loved the hotel and the staff were incredible. Will always stay there in the future. Room are small but beautiful. Rooms facing the canal had very little storage space.
Location, interior design, breakfast, coffee/cakes, most staff Poor window, let in a lot of street noise, with what we paid for 2 nights (c.€380) they could buy a double glazed window (about 4 ft by 3 ft) which would be a big benefit for future users of the room. While most staff were friendly, the receptionist we mostly dealt with was businesslike/efficient rather than friendly. (my wife might use different words!)
The rooms were very nice and clean. The breakfast was excellent. The staff was very kind. My brother lives in Paris and is recommending the Hotel Estherea to any of his friends/associates who are planning to visit Amsterdam. The bar wasn't open until the evening. I would have liked to have a cocktail after I checked in...but there were plenty of places around there to have one - so it was not a big deal.
The beautiful classic design interiors. The room as well.
The service was great, if I can afford to, Ill stay there again.
Hotel helps for every question asked and answers all in the perfect way. No dislikes.
While walking in the streets on a cold, windy, snowy, rainy day, the thought of going back to the hotel was pure happyness, as the hotel is so warm and cozy, It starts at the reception, continues in the corridors. Even the pool is warmer than all the pools in other hotels, I used it in the morning before breakfast and before going to bed at night. The extensive opening hours of the pool are a big advantage. The breakfast is the best I travel a lot, stay in nice hotels, none of them compares to this one...best juices, best fresh fruit, best bacon and eggs, best waffles. I loved the hotel tour, especially the wedding chapel and the other room with all the wood sculptures. I also liked the library with the fireplace. Everybody was extremely f I would have preferred a smaller and softer pillow
I hated to leave. Staff and facilities were outstanding. Room was beautiful and luxurious.
Great location, helpfull staff, nice interior, cleanliness, convinient bed, complimentary water and sweets every everning, channel and garden view, etc. - everything! To escape any delay connected with checking out the next morning, I was proposed to settle the formalities in the last everning.
The excellent staff and our gorgeous apartment to which we were upgraded Would not include breakfast again; though lovely and convenient it was very pricey given the area. Otherwise a perfect stay!
Cleanliness, wonderful architecture and interior design, polite and proficient and friendly staff Nothing. It was perfect
Absolutely first class service. Could not do enough for you. Extremely comfortable bed! -
disturbance during stay in room
Beautiful and comfortable hotel , Great helpful staff everything was great
Hotel staff was more then nice and helpful For a "Junior suit" (as booked and paid), the room was too small
Location, price, excellent staff and wonderful building... This was the third time I have stayed at this hotel, and on both previous occasions I was allocated a much larger room than this time around... This time, the room we were given felt a little cramped, especially the bathroom. Also, the room contained only one mirror, inside one of the wardrobe doors, and there was only one bedside table. I will definately use the hotel again in the future for its excellent location, condition and helpful staff, but my fondness for the hotel has been slightly reduced because of the size of our room.
Location, freindliness of staff
The only concern, was the checking in it seem too long and you did have 3 staff on. However th ques for checking in was getting longer as the staff seem to take telephone calls when attending to people checking in.
2nd stay, had a bathtub this time ++ Central location. Clean. Cheap. We couldn't have a smoking room, even though we indicated a preference for one. The rooms all seemed to have been renovated with hard flooring which made adjacent rooms a lot more noisy.
The staff Lack of information ,should make clear what the hotel offers .ie. breakfast not included no smoking signs ,never saw in rooms but rooms was clean and nice.
easy to access all areas of amsterdam ( very central location) No, everything was great, i enjoyed my stay and will book thier again when i return to Asterdam.
This is the place to stay for visitors to Amsterdam. Great location near everything. Great restaurants and bars near by. One of the better coffee shops and smart shops just a minute away. Nothing.
This was a fantastic place to stay. I would recommend it highly. Convienently located near the train station and cruise boat landings.
Lady at reception was very kind give us information about where to go. They also keep our luggage after chekout for a few hours. You fill yourself safe there.
The location is great. It's near to the train station and to the dam. I needed to laundry a pants and, despite of the price (expensive), it was very good. There was a nespresso machine in the room. There wasn't a breakfast. The room is small, but it was ok for two people.
Location was fantastic, very close to main shopping areas. Also, lots of pubs and restaurants nereby and within walking distance of everything.
Atmosphere No curtain in the shower
The free use of PC and Internet access in the Swiss Office was great
The hospitality of the staff the entrance of the hotel. you need to walk a distance to enter the hotel on the main street
Good location close to an event we were attending Television service limited and very poor reception. Shower was a bit low and cramped.
friendly staff nothing
Nice location The room was reported as superior with queen size bed, though in fact the room was 6 sq.m. with a tiny bed.
The location was excellent and the superior room was of a very high standard. I had to pay the "Amsterdam City Tax" when I checked out, when I booked the hotel the documents said it was included in the price.
Just about everything
Nice hotel. Very well located. The cost for Inet is too high, as well as the cost of the breakfast. But it's a free choice!
Clean, quiet room the fitness room is extremely basic (2 slightly outdated machines)
Very good location, just off Dam Square.
staff and service nothing
nice staff very polite
The location was excellent and the room tidy and clean. Sometimes the room was rather hot and we could not open the windows. The bed felt like it was tilting slightly to the ground??
very good location
Great location and good value
The room was spacious. The bar was unique and it's at a good location.c Room was not very clean and smelled like it! Service at the front desk was usually slow and crowded, busy.
The location, staff very efficient. The room (502). Not up the standard of a 4 star hotel for the price charged. In need of urgent re-decoration and a good clean. Bathroom, broken corners of mirror, dangerous and the toilet very badly possitioned and therfore extreemly difficult to use. I´d appreciate a reply regarding these matters as I may wish to visit again. Thank you.
The location. Service in the restaurant was very slow.
Restaurant facilities and Staff were very good, Location in city also good One lift was out of use all the time we were there and the second one was out of action for a few hours on Wednesday 18 July with NO Apparrent urgency to rectify the problem
Good location, peaceful high cost of the room, lack of amenities
Ease of booking in, we arrived at the hotel about 11.00am and our rooms were ready to occupy immediately The digital television was not working in the room therefore we could not access the movie channel
central locality was very convenient. room facilities were good. the lounge would have been better if there was a wine bar of coffee shop to create a better ambiance. my friends and I would have spent more time in the hotel if this was available.
great location, wonderful shower/ bath facilities perfect stay, only negative thing was that the evening staff forgot to inform the morning staff of our request for a late checkout - we were almost rudely ordered to leave the room until we explained we already made a request to leave later, and received only a muffled "ok" as reply! The receptionist was more polite. She called a few minutes later to confirm the request and offered her excuses for the miscommunication.
The room was too hot and you couldnt open any windows, asked for the heating to be turned off but no action was taken
Location When we arrived, I noticed that the shower was broken. I reported it 3 times and only on or last day we got moved to another room. The new room was fine however all we could hear was creaking floor boards from above which was very noisy. What really annoyed me was that the response to my complaint was not dealt with fast enough, and again the room was let again the following day and I am sure that the shower was not fixed.
it was close to everything in central amsterdam which is a bonus less walking breakfast could of been of a wider range to suite more traveling people
Nothing Thought the hotel was grim - view from window a corrugated iron sheet. Room dark and unwelcoming. Bathroom very small with sink outside the bathroom. Lift was dirty and smelled like a toilet.
staff cleanliness, old bathroom, dirty old carpets all over the hotel
This hotel was in a great location and had very friendly staff. The room set up was a little strange. The bathroom was all glass and lacked privacy. The bed was also placed strangely with the foot of the bed against the wall. This was a very clean hotel, and one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in.
The staff was very accomodating. The rooms were clean, and even though our room was on the busy street, the windows were sufficient to keep out most of the traffic noise.
Location, design and decor of the rooms I enjoyed everything and can not fault anything
I liked the newly renovated Star Rooms. I also liked the location of the hotel. There were many aspects I didn't like: - in room 601 (I stayed there between October 5-October 10, the heating was not working. I asked the reception staff to fix it, and they said the automatic heating system has some problems and there' nothing they can do about it. - I had another reservation for October 11-13. I annouced reception at check-out on Oct 10 that I will be late (around midnight) on October 11. When I arrived on October 11, they gave me a smoking room, which was impossible to breathe in. I asked for a non-smoking room and I've been told that there are no more rooms left, because I arrived very late. I found this offensive, as I announced the hotel two days before that I will be late, not to mention that I also left my luggage in the cloakroom. - after long talks, however, I was given a non-smoking room, with twin beds. It is the worst room I've ever been into, 301, it's like a coffin. Take my advise and don't offer it to other clients ever again. Also, this room was cold, as the heater was barely defrost (after turning it to maximum).
The security use of key cards for all access including lifts.Felt safe.
Lovely hotel, perfect location. The showers in room are glass, with limited frosting. So if you are with your couple then great, or close friends, but if you are sharing with someone you are not so comfortable with these rooms maybe a little "revealing" and slightly uncomfortable. Personally I didnt mind,
very convenient location, clean, secure no problems
Cannot say enough about how great our stay was here! We extended our stay by a day we loved it so much. The prices were very reasonable. They checked us in 2 hrs early with zero hassle. All of the room supplies were included. While not exceedingly spacious, everything about the room and hotel oozed modern style. There was interesting literature on the shelves. The beds were clean and comfortable. In the lobby was a hip restaurant with delicious and affordable faire which we frequented almost every day, and at night became a popular bar until 1 am. There were many other places to eat, shop, or stroll past from the Hoxton's central location, but it was far enough removed from the main tourist areas to feel somewhat local. I would recommend this place to anyone except maybe those traveling with children, as I believe they had to "cheat" to fit us into a single room, and we are smaller than your average humans as it was.
Great atmosphere Small bed
My single room was tiny. It was impossible to see the television from the bed. In the evening, the lobby turned into a very crowded and noisy nightlife venue. Because of the crowd, it was difficult to get in and out of the hotel. Would never stay here again.
